Costa Dorada

Looking for family holidays to Costa Dorada. Find cheap Costa Dorada holidyas and book online.

The hue of the fine sand on the wide, wonderful beaches of Spain's Costa Dorada (Golden Coast) has given this popular holiday region its name. The 20 or so towns and villages along this 120-mile (200km) stretch of Mediterranean coastline, south of Barcelona, have become built up with hundreds of hotels, camp sites and apartment blocks, catering mainly for family vacationers. Entertainment consists largely of enjoying the shallow, transparent, gentle sea, ideal for the 'bucket and spade' brigade, and there are some large, thrilling theme and water parks at the local resorts to keep everybody amused.

Visitors who enjoy soaking up some local culture and history along with the sun, will find the Costa Dorada has plenty to offer, particularly the main regional city of Tarragona, which was an important army base in Roman times and today boasts historical ruins and a variety of museums. Excursions inland, among the vineyards, olive groves and almond plantations, take in the quaint medieval city of Montblanc with its fine Gothic church, and at Poblet there are some interesting ruins of former monasteries dating back to the 12th century. Enhancing the area's natural and historic attractions is its sunny, temperate climate. The Costa Dorada receives millions of visitors every year and has earned its reputation as a holiday paradise.

Costa Dorada Sightseeing

Apart from the obvious appeal of the turquoise Mediterranean sea and stretches of golden sand, the Costa Dorada boasts a number of interesting cultural and historical sightseeing attractions for holidaymakers. Salou is a very popular resort, as are its neighbouring resorts of La Pineda and Cambrils, and Sitges is another great favourite on the Costa Dorada. All of these lovely beach destinations are conveniently close to Barcelona and the ancient Roman stronghold of Tarragona. If the myriad attractions of these coastal cities are not sufficient for day trippers, excursions should be taken a little way inland to the fortified medieval village of Montblanc, and the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Site of Poblet Monastery. Another historic monastery nearby is the Royal Monastery of Santes Creus, which is also definitely worth a visit for culture vultures. For less culture and more physical thrills, holidaymakers can spend the day at PortAventura Theme Park, a massive, and massively popular, amusement park, very near La Pineda.

There are good local bus services connecting the main towns and resorts along the Costa Dorada, and a reliable train service connecting Salou, Tarragona, Sitges and Barcelona. Car rental is a good option for those who want to explore the interior.
